The company designed EG-740UT for diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic ultrasound procedures in the upper digestive tract, including the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. When used with the Arietta 850 ultrasound processor, the scope is suitable for complex clinical needs in large academic medical centers, ambulatory surgical centers and community hospitals.
“The introduction of the EG-740UT and its compatibility with the Arietta 850 is truly the next step in advancing therapeutic EUS for our customers,” said Taisuke Fujita, general manager of endoscopy at Fujifilm Healthcare Americas Corporation. “This all-Fujifilm solution delivers high-end, all-around clinical performance, and we’re proud to bring therapeutic endoscopists this vital technology to manage the patient care pathway from diagnosis to treatment across care settings.”
The Arietta system has ultrasonic transmission, reception technology and imaging processing technology to render clear ultrasound images for visualization and tissue acquisition in the target organ.
Fujifilm’s EG-740UT features a high-performance transducer that adjusts piezoelectric direction and enables high ultrasonic conversion efficiency to allow for the ultrasound to pick up on small signals from target tissues.
The scope’s distal end is reconfigured with changes to the positioning of the camera lens, transducer and instrument channel outlet, which increases visibility of treatment devices. It uses the company’s G-Lock mechanism that fixates the guidewire during intra procedural instrument exchange.
EG-740UT is also equipped with the features and benefits of Fujifilm’s 700 series portfolio that eliminates the need to attach a separate video connector.
The EG-740UT and the compatible ARIETTA 850 will be commercially available in the U.S. in early 2023.
